Busey Associate Rodney Camper“Midday during the work week, I received a phone call from my grandmother. This was a major deviation from our regular Saturday calls to catch up. She told me that my father had a heart attack and was in the ICU at UnityPoint Health - Peoria in stable condition. The drive to Peoria, was perhaps, the most afraid I have been in my life. An hour drive through Central Illinois allows a person’s mind to really think. I couldn’t help but consider how much time with him I have taken for granted, how close I was to never hearing another of his terrible dad jokes and how close I was to never hearing anyone on earth call me “Rod-Man!” again. These were frightening thoughts, but luckily for both of us, they were not to become our reality. I learned a lot that day—most importantly to truly cherish the time I have with those around me and the value of making each interaction a positive one.”
